SITE NEWS: The website will be down tonight temporarily as we move to a more robust server. This is the 4th (5th?) upgrade, and while I’m happy that the shows are so popular, I’m going through a ton of bandwidth and my costs are increasing again. If you’re reading the Daily News (caught ya!) and are not already a Patreon supporter, please consider a $5/month subscription. That support will also give you access to the Daily News Briefing podcast where I go a bit deeper into some of these stories. It’s no longer beer money folks, now it’s server money. Thanks! I do appreciate it.
